Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Currently flying and building quadcopters including a new 3DR Solo that uses Linux Foundation DroneCode and dual 1Ghz CPU's, a DJI 2 clone - CX-20 350 Open Source quad that uses Arduino Mega-based APM v2.52 with the ArduCopter v3.1.2 and a DJI Flamewheel 450 clone with a RobotShop/Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano (Arduno Mega 2560 based CPU). Have built a full-up F-16 simulator based upon the old Falcon 3.x/4.0 program and Thrustmaster hardware/kit. Done some work on integrating that as a ground station with various R/C aircraft including VTOL designs and R/C helis.

"I have toyed around with the idea of a autonomous "lawnbot" for years now. Not just mowing but other yard maintenance tasks as well. Be glad to discuss and share what I have learned..."
